It is customary in the US to work in “gratuity” positions. In these positions, you will receive a base hourly salary plus gratuity (tips). While the amount of a gratuity is ultimately at the discretion of the guest, the customary tip is 15- 20% of the total bill before tax. Based on history, you may expect to earn around $22.00 per hour.
A uniform and meal per shift are offered.
You should fly into ABQ International.
The employer is sourcing a 2-bedroom apartment for you to share with the other J1. It will be single occupancy per room, it will include their utilities, and will have the basic furniture requirements. They will be rented out as two bedrooms, which will have a shared kitchen and living space. Depending on availability there could be a shared bathroom, but we are trying to find 2bd/2bth units. The payment will come out of their paycheck bi-monthly.
You will need to purchase a car. There is no public transportation that will get them near the resort and most apartments are a bit far to ride a bike to/from. Weather conditions in winter would also prevent bike/moped options.
Santa Fe is the capital city of New Mexico and sits in the Sangre de Cristo foothills. With its extensive Spanish history and beautiful desert sites, Santa Fe is a must-see. Not only are you moments from historical sights, museums, and art galleries filled with regional culture, but a short drive outside the city will bring you beautiful desert hiking, mountain skiing, and so many more outdoor wonders.
Public transit is available throughout the downtown area with monthly and annual passes available for $20 monthly or $200 annually. If living outside the downtown area, it is suggested you purchase a vehicle upon arrival. HRC recommends bringing an additional $3,000 to secure a vehicle. Vehicle insurance will also be required and can be expected to cost around $150 monthly depending upon the vehicle.
Santa Fe has moderate temperatures that range from 17F to 86F (-8C to 30C) depending on the time of year. Most days are sunny with an average rainfall of 14 inches. Proximity to the mountains and desert allows for sunny, cloudless skies with low humidity and perfect weather for outdoor activities.
